Giants’ defense said Alfred Morris, not RG3, was the man to stop

alfredmorris AP

In another sign that Robert Griffin III is not the same player he was as a rookie before blowing out his knee, the Giants said after Sunday night’s win in Washington that stopping running back Alfred Morris — not Griffin — was the focal point of their defense.

“We thought going into the game the cowbell was Alfred Morris,” Giants middle linebacker Jon Beason told the Star-Ledger. “You look at when he has a big game vs. when he doesn’t have a big game, even when RG3 has a big game, they don’t do too well. He’s the guy that makes them go.”

That approach worked: Griffin had a season-high 88 rushing yards and also had decent passing numbers (24-for-32 for 207 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions), but Morris was limited to just 11 carries for 26 yards, and New York’s defense shut down Washington’s offense for most of the game.

“Fortunately for us [Sunday night], we were able to take Alfred out of the game,” Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said. “RG hurt us in the first half running the football, but that was design by us to make sure we took Alfred out of the game. We didn’t think RG was going to be as good as he was in the first half. Second half we came in and did some adjustments, and were able to stop that a little bit.”

And stopping Morris is the key to stopping Washington’s offense.

    When you have an O-Line built to run the zone/stretch game and your run game gets shut down, it exposes the lack of size needed for reliable pass protection on obvious passing downs. The Redskins need to re-think their personnel strategy up front. Shanahan’s philosophy of mobile lineman just doesn’t hold water anymore in the NFL.

  6. randomguy9999 says: Dec 2, 2013 11:10 AM

    The jury is now in on RG3 and for the millionth time: Scrambling QBs do not make it in the NFL….

    The contact they take in the NFL is 500% of what happens in college, if they don’t get their head around avoiding contact, they end up missing games, or worse, ending their career early…… and they never, ever are franchise guys.

  7. gallopinggilmore says: Dec 2, 2013 11:10 AM

    The real story here is the inability of anyone to stop the mouths of the Giants players.

  8. superbowl42champs says: Dec 2, 2013 11:15 AM

    McCoy twice, AP, forte, and Morris all less than 100 yards a game against the giants. Pass rush may not be the same but the run D has stepped up big time since last year.

    National Fixed League. Period.

  13. FinFan68 says: Dec 2, 2013 11:24 AM

    RG3 has a mental issue with that knee injury. He doesn’t look the same to me. He looks tentative. I saw several throws where he had a slight hop during the throw when guys were around him. It looks like he doesn’t want to get hit with his foot planted. There were a couple runs where it seemed he was “babying” that knee so there might still be some soreness he isn’t talking about.

  14. harrisonhits2 says: Dec 2, 2013 11:29 AM

    RGFragileEgo has already seen his better days in the NFL unless the horrible Washington coaching staff provides a much better supporting cast.

    Starting with the revolving door Oline. They need to spend whatever the highest draft picks they have left on Olinemen.

    RGFragileEgo is a 2nd tier QB on his best days, and when they can’t protect him he drops to bottom feeder level.

  15. dixiebob says: Dec 2, 2013 11:29 AM

  18. florioluvsdix says: Dec 2, 2013 11:36 AM

    Maybe handing the ball off to morris only 11 times is what stopped morris from putting up his usual numbers. Maybe not trusting him in short yardage is what is keeping morris from becoming even better in his second year. They used Helu and their FB almost as much as morris last night. What a waste of talent. This teams strength is the run…. run it down opponents throats. They had a 14-0 lead… They are built to win these types of games. Fire Kyle Shannahan.

  19. dcapettini says: Dec 2, 2013 11:38 AM

    Logicalvoicesays: If you think that the league is fixed, why do you watch and why do you care? Do you watch pro wrestling too and get mad at who wins, although you know that is determined before the contest? Is Dan Snyder in on the fix, or is it just Roger Goodell and a coterie of evil consorts? Surely most of the owners must be in on the plot since Roger works for them. Which owners do you think are part of the conspiracy?

  20. Gdelarocks says: Dec 2, 2013 11:39 AM

    This game was miserable to watch despite its close score. Two bad teams and somehow the bad Giants are still technically alive. I hate the Eagles, for the record, but they are clearly the best team in this division after watching all 4 teams in this division play this week.

    Eagles looked good offensivey against a good Arizona defense. The Eagles d has begun to play well enough to get by with the help of their offense. Make defense a priority in the off season and with the youth and talent Philly has, this division is theirs for a while.

    The Giants cant ever be counted out, but fact is this years team is not a good football team. The Cowboys, yet again, are the definition of mediocre and will come up short.

  22. commonsensedude says: Dec 2, 2013 11:39 AM

    Only one man in the NFL has the ability to truly stop Alfred Morris. And time and time again, this man breaks the hearts of Skins fans by ruthlessly neutralizing Morris’ running attack before it really manages to hurt opposing teams.

    I wish this man, Kyle Shanahan, would end his evil plan to halt number 46.

  23. fballguy says: Dec 2, 2013 11:42 AM

    As usual, Kyle Shanahan “took Morris out of the game.”

    Time to go Kyle Shanny. On deck… your Dad.

  27. blackqbwhiterb says: Dec 2, 2013 11:54 AM

    Morris’ 11 carries tell me that Shanahan stopped him, not the Giants’ defense.
    It’s a shame when the Offense moves right down the field in the 1st quarter, then changes what worked for the rest of the game….???? Or is it more that the Giants made adjustments and the Redskins failed to make counter-adjustments? Either way it’s Kyle’s fault.
    Coupled with RG3’s playing scared and WR’s dropping passes/handing the ball to the other team

    We win this game…it’s a “feel good” win in a down season. Then, we move on to next week.

    If the Washington cellarskins had won this game, you would have thought they won the Super Bowl.

    And that in a nutshell is the difference between the Giants and your sorry franchise where mediocrity is roundly celebrated.

    Refs screwed up, happens all the time…But the Redskins blew this game. Don’t give up 14 point leads at home, drop balls that hit you in the numbers and fix your offensive line which was your biggest weakness for last 3 seasons and maybe you win more than 3 games….Hail! Ha ha ha ha

  35. commonsensedude says: Dec 2, 2013 12:37 PM

    The Giants talk way too much for a team with five wins and that will be watching the playoffs at home just like us for all but two of the past six years.

    By the time their defense gets finished talking, we’ll learn that the Skins botched punt snap was part of the Giants’ game plan. Guys, our teams both suck this year. Just be quiet, stop talking, and try to get ready for next year.

  36. islandgechee says: Dec 2, 2013 12:43 PM

    Will somebody please tell them to put in Kirk Cousins and trade RG3 to the Jags already

  37. blu4l1fe says: Dec 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    In the battle for who has the worse OC, the skins showed the Giants who got who.

    As evidenced by the game and a lot of posts here, Kyle has effectively shown his ineffectiveness as a coordinator by going away from what obviously has worked for the skins, e.g, running t he ball.

    As a Giants fan, I know the team’s not going anywhere this season as much as they try and give fans glimpses of what could be and I swore the skins were going to run away with the win after two early and seemingly easy scoring drives. But, and putting aside the horrid officiating, that was one of the worst offensive play calling I’ve seen. And I’ve bad offensive play calls from the Giants this season specifically.

    They need to overhaul that team from the ground up. They’re not doing griffin any favor by having futile minds on the sidelines and upstairs on the booth.

  38. bigbluenationdb says: Dec 2, 2013 12:55 PM

    I laugh at the comparison of RG3-9 to Cam Newton. Newton is like 6’5″ 250 his body is built to handle some of those big hits. Plus if you watch Cam he never takes on defenders unless it is at the goal line. RG3-9 is built like a track athlete. Small and skinny. His body will never take the pounding like Cam can.

    Skins mortgage the future on a fragile (physically and mentally) QB. Now they have to live with. The fan base feel in love with a fraud now ownership is tied to him.

    RG3-9 is so bad and can’t run a pro style offense the Redskins have to run a triple/read option for him to have success. That is like playing football in the 1980s. At one point the Skins were using WRs that were flanked out wide to run the option hoping a gimmick play would have results.

    17 out of the past 21 years the Redskins have been eliminated from the playoffs in the first week of December. LALALALALALALA

  39. bigbluenationdb says: Dec 2, 2013 1:05 PM

    @blu4life – I totally agree with your assessment of the Giants offense. How many times are we going to run that terrible inside draw play out of the shotgun formation. Put a fullback in front of Brown and run the ball. We must have ran that play 6 times for no yards!!!

    My worse fear as a Giants fan is Coughlin decides to come back instead of retiring, which means both Gilbride and Fewell will be back. That just sits the team back another year. Hopefully we finish with a respectable record and Coughlin decides to retire.

  40. taintedlombardis says: Dec 2, 2013 1:05 PM

    The RG3 haters are cute. He outplays Luck for the upteenth time, yet has 20 times the haters. Couldn’t have anything to do with his complexion, could it?

    Luck was horrible yesterday. Again.

  41. aldante66 says: Dec 2, 2013 1:10 PM

    I missed yardage thing is kind of moot considering they did pass for a first down but the ball was stolen. I think the original call and ball placement was correct, no first down. It was the stupid chain guy who assumed a first down and moved the sticks when it was not.

    ————————————————–

    Your better than me. I predicted before the season started the Pack would be 6-10 and was chastised by the fans. They were correct, the pack with that tie can only be 6-9-1 now. It didn’t take genius. I looked at the makeup of this team, especially the d and said they would get 6 with Rogers play and that was it.

  43. richardmswartz says: Dec 2, 2013 1:18 PM

    I’m an Eagles fan and if I was the GM I would trade Foles for RG3 straight up if Washington was foolish enough to make that trade. He’s regressed this year but it seems more about a slow start and a bad offensive cooridnator than RG3’s fault.

    Saying that, Washington’s defense is so bad and so many draft picks were used in that RG3 trade, I don’t see Washington seriously competing for a championship anytime soon.

  44. aldante66 says: Dec 2, 2013 1:19 PM

    RGIII should be embarrassed his daddy comes to see him. There were millions of guys in WWII who went to war for 5 years who would have loved to have there daddy’s there too. The difference, these guys were men.
    If ever this guy gets his ego out of his ass and tells his dad to watch the game at home and mans up, he could become a decent QB. One thing for sure, the guys he ran around in college are a hell of a lot slower than what he’s up against now.

  45. blu4l1fe says: Dec 2, 2013 1:30 PM

    I agree as well with yours. I believe Coach Coughlin’s run, with the Giants, at least, has run its course. I just think, as most if not all, of the Giants fans out there, that the overall talent within the team is extremely underutilized. Not lobbying for a great mind to replace the current OC and DC, but anything’s got to be better than who’s there now.

  47. 1rockyracoon says: Dec 2, 2013 1:46 PM

    A QB who can run will make it in the NFL if they go through all their reads and take off running only when necessary. QB’s like Vick and Griffin take off running when their first option is not open. They don’t check their other options before running with the ball. Griffin is young enough to learn how to play the position. He needs to be willing to learn and he needs coaches who can teach him.

    ELI the 2x SB MVP starts his 147th straight regular season game and eliminates the Washington Redskins.

  49. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 2, 2013 2:21 PM

    Morris killed us last year. It is why we went out and beefed up at DT. We have stuffed the run very well (excluding late in blowout losses where teams were running the ball at will against a worn out defense). Griffin is noticeably 2-3 steps slow from last year, so we aren’t worried about him getting the edge.

    Fewell made it clear even before the game plan was put in that they were going to focus on Morris and keep the receivers in front of them, and Griffin in the pocket. It worked, for the most part.

  50. justintuckrule says: Dec 2, 2013 2:31 PM

    Bugs me when fellow Giants’ fans are hoping this is Coughlin’s last year. I thought you guys were knowledgeable. 99% of coaching is getting your team up for games. What other coach could have rallied his rather untalented team from 0-6 to win 5 out of 6? Mike Smith? Kubiak? Atlanta and Houston are much more talented than us and they’ve been in the tank for a month. We’re on our 6th rb, 49th OL combination and a MLB who came in mid-season and the team is still running through walls for Coughlin. Team record does not tell the entire story.

  51. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Dec 2, 2013 2:40 PM

    No way you can agrue with that statement. Shanahan’s offenses are based on the running game and it still is the RB not the QB. Bob Griffin is done.

    You are kidding yourself if you believe that drivel. Luck has nothing but a slot receiver and a guy with feet for hands as a WR. The Skins receiving corps may be trash, but outside of Hankerson, he is missing nothing.

    And he has a running game.

    your stats dont make up for that difference.

    anyone who thinks rg3 is a better qb than luck is delusional.

    and by the way, you sats only show that rg3 has reggressed as a qb and luck has improved from last year. good job

    luck, tannehill, wilson have all shown improvement and have their teams in the playoffs or in contention for the playoffs, rg3….not so much.

  56. pkrjones says: Dec 2, 2013 3:20 PM

    As for the comparison above with Luck and RG3-9. Those stats are misleading. In some games RG3-9 didn’t even get any yards until teams went to prevent. (Philly game is a perfect example). A lot of RG3-9 stats have come in garbage time.

    Also, the Redskins are the kings of bubble screens and check downs. How many balls does RG3-9 complete that travel more then 5 yards from the line of scrimmage. Any QB can throw quick slants and bubble screens with accuracy.

  62. justintuckrule says: Dec 2, 2013 4:33 PM

    @1bigtex – the NFC West combined for 25 wins that year. The AFC South currently has 18.

    If you look at who the AFC South plays in the last 4 weeks (including several games against each other), being ultra-conservative, they will win 7 more games tops. If Tenn loses to the Cards, which is a very distinct possibility, no way will the AFC South combine for 25 wins.

    But your point is well taken.

  63. commonsensedude says: Dec 2, 2013 4:41 PM

    Chicagogiantsfan, I’d be glad to pass that note to RG3 and have said the same thing about him and his recent talking as well. Players of 3-9 and 5-7 teams should be seen but not heard.

  64. seaeagle707 says: Dec 2, 2013 4:42 PM

    The Hawks QB, has been running all year, but not because he necessarily wanted to. Both of our Tackles went down early and guys have been rotating on the line, doing yeoman work, if not aceing the positions. But Wilson, is a smart scrambler, never trying for more than is realistic. That I believe is the difference, in a good, running QB, and one who gets banged up. Knowing to go for the realistic, and not over-extending oneself.

    I haven’t watched RGIII enough, to know where his limitations have been. Wherever they’ve been, it’s pretty obvious that he, hasn’t been paying attention to them. Shame.

  65. billco6192013 says: Dec 2, 2013 4:47 PM

    You know when a qb has that special something coming into the league.Last year we all were saying wow luck can really sling the rock and when we watched RG 3 WE SAID THAT GUY IS BOUND TO GET HURT.we all know running qbs is a fad in nfl.I dont see RG3 checking down in pass plays or calling out blitzing mikes.you dont see that progression in check down to open wr s .BY 2016 THIS GUY WONT BE A STARTER.Sorry skin fans dont see it in this guy.As bad as eli manning is you see him make tight throws in small windows and check down to hot routes and call out blitzing mikes to help his line.You have to be very smart to be a qb in this league.college is one step over high school and pro s is where everyone is at such a high level that it wont be enough to just be athletic.It doesnt help that they put RG3 in front of a mic everyday and expose him to all that media garbage .shanohan has to protect this guy.He is in early stages of carrer and shanohan should be the one who talks to the press everyday and let this kid concentrate on the game,.

  66. billco6192013 says: Dec 2, 2013 5:01 PM

    Hit the film room Rg3 and study the defences harder,that running around crap will only last so long.True pocket passers make the hall of fame and win superbowls.Look at Cam now ,less running more throwing.It doesnt hurt that cam is 6-5 250 either,Your not built to take a pounding from 300 pound guys.This guy reminds me of slash from steelers.watch brees, manning and ,brady.Masters of the check downs and finding open hot routes.

  67. lizardlickk says: Dec 2, 2013 5:44 PM

    It was nice to watch Kyle get the giants the W. Decided to only run Morris 3 times on the first 7 plays of the second half and doesn’t touch the ball again for the rest of the game. Shanny said pulling Alf was determined by the turf on the field. The burial ground just got resodded prior to the niners game a week ago. What else can they sell us on skins fans? It comes down to one thing IMO and it’s clear that we are being out coached.

I don’t want to hear about inflated stats (i.e. garbage time this year with Bob) and completion percentage when almost all of your throws are “safe” off that gimmick offense, pulling LBs and DBs into the box and leading to wide open receivers. Same as I told Oregon fans with Mariota (same thing with Griffin), when comparing his stats to Jameis Winston’s, who were STILL better, despite throwing 30+ yard passes 12-15 times per game.

    If this is God’s chosen team, why do they stink??
    And stop crying that everyone is out to get the Skins’. They were hit with a cap penalty because your owner couldn’t make sense of how to budget his team. Please keep Shanarat’s and RGKnee!

    2013 Stats
    —————-
    RGIII – 3039 Yards , 60.9 Comp. %, 15 TD, 11 INT, 83.3 Passer Rating
    Luck – 2793 Yards, 58.1 Comp. %, 15 TD, 8 INT, 82.4 Passer Rating

    Everyone is on Griffin’s back for having a bad year whereas the exact opposite is true for Luck. Griffin’s ‘bad year’ is better than Luck’s good year but no one talks about that. Atleast we can finally put this debate over which one is better to rest.

    Yeah, except the only stat that counts: Luck’s team is leading their division at 8-4 and RG3 has led the Skins to last place and playoff elimination with a month to go at 3-9

    If you asked every coach in the NFL which QB they would want on their team you would get 32 Luck votes…. Luck is going to be a healthy franchise QB 7 years after RG3 is out on two blown knees
